    Hi Martin,

    Good to see to work from you again. In my opinion this is a pretty stunning picture. The faded colours of the cochlea match exactly the colours in the background (actually the whole composition) The bokeh of the fore- and background are pretty smooth so the slow snail catches your focus directly.

      DJ, my friend ---

      thank you for the comment --- I spent some days in hospital (with a burst appendix) after I got back from Austin TX - so the snail really reminded me of the frantic speed I had been going at for six weeks now --- and what is needed right now is DE-CELERATION.

      Thanks also for the lovely observation about the colour in the picture ... I thought pretty much the same.

      Warm best and have great weekend,

      P.S. Sorry for being so lazy about commenting (your) pictures lately, I was just too busy, but I shall try to improve.

    Hallo Martin,
    besser kann man die Aussage des Untertitels wohl nicht in einem Bild audrücken. Klasse Idee. Die Lichtführung gefällt mir außerordentlich gut.
